About this pro

I’ve been sewing since the tender age of(9) nine years old; making buttonhole by hand for my older sister, who was an accomplished seamstress, sewing for the family & a select group of customers I pestered her to teach me to sew, using the threadle that we owned. We’d use taped together newspapers for our patterns so I would say that’s where it all started.

It has now been five decades since that threadle machine & I have to say that my passion for Patternmaking & sewing has not diminished. In fact I feel like any day that I do not learn something new, to me, that’s a wasted day.

We make our own patterns from individualized measurements for both men & women. We also make patterns for others who sews but lack the Patternmaking skills. I am a published author in Threads magazine on pants drafting. 

My taglines are, “We make you look great, no matter what your shape & It doesn’t matter the time, location, or season; great fit is always in fashion. 

I do have a degree in Fashion Design but my passion is to pass on the knowledge that I have acquired over the years, so that the business of sewing doesn’t go the way of the ‘horse & buggy’.

It's making something from scratch that fits my customers exactly as they were expecting. Seeing the delight on their faces & satisfaction in their eyes. Being able to go from measurements to a pattern that fits & flatters is truly an amazing feeling.

    You will love working with Mrs. Claudette! She'll teach how to take proper measurements and fitted patterns for your body. I took this course not only to look professional but also be confident in my work. I am only on my first week and i look forward to learn more.

    I started with Ms. Claudette in June 2019 and I am currently taking one-to-one classes. My first class consisted of measurements, measurements and more measurement! She explained why and I understood. I do 2 hours each time I see her. Understanding the process of making pants and can't wait until my first pair is created. She is an OUTSTANDING and KNOWLEDGEABLE seamstress and instructor.
